Monthly Wrap Up | June 2021

Once again, I find myself scratching my head and wondering where the time went. I’m not sure what happened to the month of June but it’s gone and I feel like I accomplished very little.

in real life

I’m not gonna lie, I don’t do a whole lot ‘in real life’ these days. We moved to Missouri at the beginning of this year and COVID is still very rampant here. While I’m fully vaccinated, I’m still choosing to be careful and spend most of my time at home. Let’s be real, it’s just an excuse for my introverted self to spend more time alone.

I did celebrate my pup’s 6th birthday. He still acts like a crazy puppy but he’s definitely getting older. He’s been loving his new background at the house in Missouri and one day we’ll get him out to some dog parks here.

in books

  • Diver’s Heart by K.A. Knight – 18+ – Another BookTok recommendation that wasn’t all that great. I enjoyed this one more than Den of Vipers (it had some serious horror vibes that I loved) but otherwise, just a meh read.
  • Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight – 18+ – I had to do it. After seeing this one all over BookTok, I had to give it a try. To be honest, it was only a mediocre read and I wouldn’t recommend it.
  • Lilac by B.B. Reid – 18+ – The quickest way to get me to read a book is to mention that it features famous people, specifically musicians. It’s one of my favorite things and Lilac was everything I could have hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.
  • Sweet Temptation by Cora Reilly – 18+ – Another great introduction to mafia romance. This one was pretty light and a quick read. Some taboo subjects so check trigger warnings.

  • Just Drop Out, Make Your Move, and Play the Game (Hannaford Prep #1-3)) by J. Bree – 18+ – This one is a slow burn bully romance and the series tops the list of my favorites for the month. I’m still finishing book four but they are so good!

  • Resurrection, Rebellion, and Reign (The Sainthood #1-3) by Siobhan Davis – 18+ – Another dark bully romance/reverse harem that was found on BookTok. Clearly I liked it enough to read all of the books in the series. Check trigger warnings as these are pretty dark at times.

in film

I am in the middle of watching the new Loki series on Disney + and I’m so in love. Everything about this series is great. I love the music, the cast is wonderful, and the story has me captivated. I can’t wait to see the rest of the series and see what happens with my favorite trickster.

in music

This is one of my favorite songs at the moment and has been on repeat recently.

How was your June? Did you read anything you can’t stop recommending? What have you been watching? Is there any new music that you’ve been listening to on repeat? Leave me all of your recommendations in the comments!

  1. I’ve had a pretty slow June as well. I only got 4 books in this month, and feel like I’m so behind. I’m definitely trying to figure out how to go back to normal after a year of working from home.
